Tyenol is safe drink some tea with it to help kick start it,and if it gets real bad go to the dr and they'll give you some amoxicillin it wont hurt the baby, at least thats what my dr told me.

ok so I also had a horrible cold for two weeks. Our immune systems are depressed so that our bodies don't attack baby.
You can't take a whole lot and cough medicines don't work anyway. Here's what has worked! Buy a probiotic to boost your immune system. Make sure the count is like 50 billion or more. Mine is 400 billion from RAW. This is both safe and recommended by my midwives/ OB.
I also made a "tonic" for my tea: it's sooooo helpful. Get raw honey... Nothing that has ever been heated..... And put the jar in warm water in a pot on the stove to loosen it gently. To a jar, add sliced ginger, lemon, and a good amount of cinnamon. These are going to soothe your cough and they are anti-viral. Add the honey which is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-viral and store in the fridge. Add a few spoonfuls to your hot tea or just hot water and drink all day. Tastes amazing!! This worked for me immediately! After two days my cold is pretty much gone!
